Pathway Tools can natively (ie no external library or program dependencies) print to PostScript. However, in order to print to PDF, Pathway Tools needs an external helper program called ps2pdf provided by the Ghostscript program.

For Linux (Debian based), you can simply install it by running apt-get install ghostscript.

For Windows, you'll need to download it from

For Mac, you can find use the built-in Preview application to open the PS file and then "Export to PDF".
